The term crepey skin, or crepe skin, refers to skin that looks thin, wrinkled, and similar in appearance to crepe paper. This kind of wrinkling can be the most frustrating to deal with. It typically occurs due to a decrease in collagen and elastin fibres, which provide structure and elasticity to the skin. Crepey skin is more commonly seen in older individuals but can also affect younger people due to factors like sun damage, genetics, dehydration, and moisture loss.
How to prevent crepey skin?
There are several things you can do that may help protect your skin against the development of crepey skin.
- Sun protection
The most effective way to prevent crepey skin from developing is to protect the skin from UV exposure. Always applying sunscreen when outside during day and avoiding prolonged UV radiation can prevent further damage.
To treat crepey skin, it’s essential to maintain a consistent skincare routine. Regularly moisturising the skin helps improve hydration and elasticity.
